Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor field of vision, no button, waste of money I bought this as a cheap alternative to the more pricey headsets. You really get what you pay for. Field of vision is awful with a huge black border (Im using a galaxy s6 so Im not sure if a larger phone would help), there is no button to select things in VR so you will be constantly removing the headset also. You get what you pay for here. Do what I should have done and save up for a Gear VR headset.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor field of vision hard to adjust. This has a very poor field of vision and is very difficult to adjust. I still haven’t adjusted the lenses to a satisfactory level. Advertised with a magnetic touch button which IS NOT present.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job well Got this as a leaving present for one of my mate's, and he's lovin it. It does its job nice and simple, and definitely provides banter when you're watching whoever has it on! A bit uncomfortable around the head, but not enough to take away from the fun. All in all, a nice little gift.

What is the interactive magnetic button that's on the spec sheet?

Can you wear spectacles with this model?

Asked by: myopic
It's really going to depend on the size of the frames, there is a small recess in which small spectacles would fit, but we cannot guarantee individual examples.
